Director Anne Fletcher's new film "Hot Pursuit," starring Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Golden Globe-nominated actress Sofia Vergara, hits theaters this Friday, May 8, 2015.
Fletcher describes "Hot Pursuit" as a comedy that is, "a fun ride that with these two extremely and funny women, who have so much chemistry that it is palatable and enjoyable and you just can't help but laugh out loud."
Not only is the fast-paced comedy written by a pair of great writers David Feeney ("Two Broke Girls") and John Quaintance ("Material Girls"), but it is also being produced by Reese Witherspoon and her producing partner Bruna Papandrea. Last year these two dynamos produced "Gone Girl," starring Ben Affleck and Reese's film "Wild," was nominated for an Oscar last February. So, take notice movie lovers, "Hot Pursuit" is the movie to see this weekend.
Fletcher has only kind words to say about Reese as a producer, "It was Reese's idea to do a movie with Sofia. It shows that her instincts are so spot on, that no matter what the movie, this would be a funny pairing."
She went on to talk about both of her leading ladies, "Both of these women were such a delight to hang out with. They are both very smart, very in charge of their own careers, but in the same time they know who they are in the world."
"Hot Pursuit" is rated PG-13 for sexual content, violence, language and some drug material and has a run time of one hour and 27 minutes.
Cinemas Palme D'Or is located at the Westfield Shopping Plaza at 72840 Highway 111, Palm Desert, CA.
